I wonder why, when within a week of the oil spill, several companies contacted the WH and gave information about material that would help soak up the oil, that NOTHING was done within that first week?
And still NOTHING has been done when this stuff is just sitting there waiting to be used.
Maine factory owner begs feds: Why aren’t you buying the oil barriers I’m churning out?
He figured there’d be a demand so he started cranking out a supply, and … crickets.
He’s already had a representative from BP visit his factory and inspect his product. The governor of Maine, John Baldacci, visited the facility and made a video plea to no one in particular to close the deal. Maine Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins wrote a letter on May 21 to the secretary of the Interior, the administrator of NOAA, and the commandant of the Coast Guard to alert them to the existence of Packgen, their supply of boom, and their demonstrated capacity to make more. I have no idea if those are the correct persons and agencies to notify about the manufacturing capacity and the availability of boom. One wonders if the senators know…

Helen Thomas is the daughter of people from Lebanon. Of course she hates the Jews.
It’s also a good thing she has apologized and retired. There is absolutely no excuse for these type of comments ever.

Where is all the outrage over this oil spill from the Hollyweird elite??
Where are the telethons and benefits for the people/animals/marshes etc of the Gulf Coast??
Where are all the “Save the Gulf” concerts?
Where are the celebrities and musicians giving heart felt speeches on the poor fisherman, wildlife, beaches, loss of income and sabotaged gulf
Where is the outcrying for this disaster that has happened in our own country to our very own people??
Why don’t they care about this disaster??
